West Point visit

 I'll be speaking at West Point this Monday, March 7, as part of their creative writing forum. West Point Library, 7 p.m., Alexander Haig Room, 6th floor.

I'll leave my anecdotes of drinking beer and partying with sorority girls in college out of my speech, for the sake of the cadets in attendance.

Update, March 8: I really enjoyed the West Point reading - good turnout, beautiful library overlooking the Hudson River, and nuanced, thoughtful questions. I advised the cadets that as long as they're not social retards as platoon leaders, they'll find success. An English professor afterwards said he thought the cadets appreciated and understood my "respectful irreverence." I'm still bursting with pride about that one.
